We have a winner for the biggest scumbag of the year. Maybe on the list of all-time dirtbags. This dude was the driver of the car that crashed and he left his date inside to take a cab to the hospital. What are you doing?! How can someone do this?
According to NYPost:
The driver in a fiery crash on the Gowanus Expressway early Friday morning hailed a cab and left the scene — leaving his female passenger burning to death inside the flame-engulfed car, according to police.
Saeed Ahmad, 23, of Brooklyn took the taxi to Maimonides Hospital in Borough Park, leaving his flaming 2007 Infiniti G35 sedan with the victim inside, cops said.
The charred body of Harleen Grewel, 25, of Astoria, Queens, was discovered in the front passenger seat after fire fighters extinguished the flames from the 4 a.m. crash.
Cops caught up with Ahmed at Maimonides, where he was being treated for burns to his extremities.
He was later arrested on charges of criminally negligent homicide, leaving the scene of an accident, aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle and speeding.
Cops say Ahmad, of Mill Basin, had lost control of his car as it was heading westbound near Centre Street in Red Hook. The car burst into flames after striking a concrete barrier.
Ahmad and Grewel may have been dating, the station reported.
Here is video from the news covering the situation. You can clearly see him getting into the cab with the fire going:
